SUMMARY
MODEL OUTPUTS
The main components of this project include an integrated GIS as a mechanism to access, store, retrieve, and analyze data as well as an interface for coupling the GIS model with the Internet and publishing the results on the Web. The model's outputs are the results of two interpolation techniques: Thiessen polygon and Kriging. Each technique produced species habitat distribution maps with properties, limitations, and caveats unique to the modeling technique used as well as the data inputs. The output of both models were integrated with an Internet-capable mapping software with built-in GIS functionality: ESRI's ArcIMSTM. A website containing a detailed description of the project and its components was then built around ArcIMS.
